Young air cadets in West Norfolk were delighted to receive a special visit from the mayor.
On Monday, January 15, West Norfolk mayor Carol Bower made the annual civic visit to the Loke Road headquarters of the King's Lynn Air Cadets.
42F King's Lynn Squadron Air Training Corps was formed in 1939 during the Second World War, where cadets took on fire watching and police runner duties.
Mrs Bower watched a drill practice and also got the chance to speak to the cadets about the Squadron's Norfolk Aviation Heritage Project which coincides with the Royal Air Force's RAF 100th anniversary this year.
The year-long project, which involves schools and other organisations, will see the cadets visit the First World War battlefields and memorials of Belgium at Easter.
Mrs Bower said: 'They have so many different experiences and opportunities. This has been a fantastic place to visit.'
